“Ride be buggered, I think it had been that long since she’d had a ride she near drained me dry.’ What a fuckin’ nympho.’ All night she was down on my tadger.’

“What you complaining about then.’

“I like something to look at you know, her arse nearly put the light out on the ceiling.’

They stayed for another couple of pints then headed off to the club. It was free to get in if you got there before eleven thirty. The disco music could be heard from inside as a doorman looked them over and then let them in.

They snaked through the wave of bodies to the bar and Gio got the round in as Eric looked around for perspective bed warmers as he liked to call them.

He got his eye on three women and was about to move in when their boyfriends showed up.

The Steve Miller Band got some girls up onto the dance floor’ Gio returned with the drinks in bottles as they didn’t serve pints and handed one each to Sandy and Eric.

“Come on I’ve spotted three girls over there lets go ask them to dance,

“I don’t dance said Sandy, look at the size of me I just look clumsy.’

“You are feckin’ clumsy you idgit said Eric but who cares “Just move your arms and legs a bit you’ll be alright,’

Eric waded in and got talking to the three girls and within a few minutes they found themselves dancing with the young women. Sandy was a bit on the shy side and this girl whom he was dancing with was called Shirley. She was full of chat so it was easy for him just to answer and smile. Eric and Gio who had all the disco moves off and they strutted their stuff on the floor.’

“I’m sorry said Sandy, I’m no dancer really.’

“You’re a big lad aren’t you, how tall are you?’

“About six four or five.’

“I bet you keep in shape as well, I mean look at the size of those biceps.’

“I like to work out.’

“Are you a rugby player then?’

“I was yes, I played for the county team.’

“You’re not Irish are you?’ I mean you don’t have an Irish accent.’

“No,’ I’m wearing this because it’s St Patrick’s Day.’

“Oh I see.’

“So do you live here on Douglas then?’

“I am at the moment; I have two holiday homes on the island.’

“Really, I should like to see them sometime.’

Maybe I can show you them later if you like?’
